Early-age dental appointments are absolutely essential to helping your child grow up to have a strong, healthy smile, but of course, children don’t just need top-notch clinical skill—they also need an environment where they feel welcomed and comfortable. At Dream Dental, you and your child will gladly find both! Dr. Haren Patel has years of experience treating little smiles, and as a parent himself, he’ll know exactly how to keep your child calm and cool whenever they come to see us.
How We Can Help Your Child
Cavity Prevention: Tooth decay and cavities are problems that affect patients of all ages, but they particularly impact growing smiles as a child’s enamel doesn’t fully harden till age 14. Pair this with a child’s preference for sugary snacks, and you have a recipe for a lot of cavities! Fortunately, using simple, non-invasive services like fluoride treatments and dental sealants, Dr. Patel can give your child’s smile a little bit of extra protection right when they need it the most.
Oral Development: As a parent, you’re probably well aware of how fast a young child grows and changes, and the same also applies to their mouth! By keeping a close eye on your child over time, Dr. Patel will be able to guide their oral development and curtail problems that could effect it in the future.
Education: Dr. Patel always takes a portion of every child’s appointment to discuss the basics of dental care, such as proper brushing and flossing technique, why it’s important, and how their diet affects their teeth. Basically, our goal is to help your child understand how and why they should take care of their teeth, which should make it easier for them to form healthy habits at home!
We can also provide fillings and crowns for children who have experienced damaged teeth, because as we all know, life just happens sometimes! We can’t wait to meet you and your child and give you plenty of reasons to smile. To schedule their next appointment, simply contact us today.
